60SIFF has been an on-going initiative by Morango based out of Pakistan for the past 6 years. This year the festival has started its 7th chapter, 60SIFF 2018-19.
Storytelling is one of the most distinctive ways of communication that has existed since the dawn of humanity. From generation to generation; storytelling has forever served a unique purpose in propagating culture. It’s medium may well vary; whether it’s reading, writing or expressing through audio/visual modes, but what matters is how much the story enamours the listening ear or the watching eye. To that end, 60SIFF celebrates expression and storytelling through film, in particular a 60-second film that is made by people like you and me.
60SIFF has been an on-going initiative by Morango based out of Pakistan for the past 6 years. This year the festival has started its 7th chapter, 60SIFF 2018-19. Film submissions are now open, with a deadline of 15th Feb 2019. The festival has been getting great feedback from creative content creators and filmmakers the world over. Last year, 60SIFF 2017-18 had received 1,056 films from more than 55 countries across the globe, with film screenings taking place in various cities, nationally and internationally. In collaboration with our supporters and partners, we managed to successfully arrange screenings in 16 different locations in Pakistan, Nepal, and the USA.
The Festival showcases new shorts and features framed according to the announced themes that will entertain, inform and inspire personal action. The aim of this year’s chapter is to involve filmmakers, content creators, vloggers and storytellers to voice their stories and ideas in a 60-second film format. This year 60SIFF did not limit filmmakers on a certain theme, as it wanted to provide a creatively conducive open space for the filmmakers to express and showcase their ideas and talents. Furthermore, 60SIFF seeks to inspire young filmmakers to not only involve themselves in a creative process of storytelling but also convey impactful messages to society. The festival calls the potential filmmakers through the slogan of ‘Let’s Film’, carrying a message of Love, Peace and Respect.
60SIFF 2018-19, will be having its’ screening by April 2019 and will showcase the best selected films by the jury for the 7th cycle. So, to all the filmmakers and creative content creators, Let’s Film.
Submit your film before 15th February,2019 at www.60siff.com

Smart Chhori Program To Promote Digital And Financial Literacy Among Girls and Young Women In Nepal
Call for participation from 10,000 girls and young women from across the nation
Khalti, a digital payment platform in Nepal has announced the launch of a special ‘Smart Chhori’ program. The program is aimed at empowering girls and young women in Nepal through financial knowledge and skills. As part of this initiative, 10,000 adolescent girls and women from across the nation will be trained on financial and digital literacy who will later emerge as influencers in their communities.
Nepal has a high female unemployment rate and lacking digital skills has become one of the barriers for women and girls in enhancing their career. Still today, a lot of financial decisions are taken by the male members of the family and lots of women still struggle to use smartphones and handle basic finances. Smart Chhori program is launched with an aim to encourage women and girls into digital finance and help them to be ready for what’s there to come in this rapidly advancing digital world.
Smart Chhori program is a free e-learning platform inside Khalti Digital Wallet app where girls can learn about the basics of digital payments, online security and personal finance. Girls and young women from age group 15-35 years having a smartphone and access to internet can enroll in the program.
Through this program, Khati aims to equip young Nepali girls with the knowledge, skills, and attitude which can change their lives by helping them become independent, establish good financial habits, discuss saving, budgeting, and expenses with family members and improve their future prospect for decent work opportunities.
Announcing the launch, Amit Agrawal, Director of Khalti and Coordinator of Smart Chhori program says,
“‘Digital Nepal’ and ‘Smart City’ have become buzzwords recently. However, physical infrastructures alone are not sufficient to turn this dream into reality. Digitally literate population and public participation is very essential.
“And, talking about public participation, we shouldn’t forget the role of females who comprise 51% of Nepal’s population. Female Community Health Volunteers (FCHVs) have been playing a significant role to promote health care in villages across Nepal. We can mobilize our daughters in a similar way as the agents of change to promote digital literacy and simplify lives of people with the use of internet technology.
“Smart Chhori program is launched with an aim to prepare female workforce to change Nepal into a Digital and Smart Nepal. We request all interested girls to enroll in Smart Chhori program and be Smart Role Models in their communities.”
By enrolling in this program, adolescent girls and young women can grow their digital and financial skills and leverage smartphones and internet to make an impact in the lives of people in their communities.
How to join the Smart Chhori program?
Interested girls and young women aged 15-35 years can join the training program by clicking on Smart Chhori banner on the home screen of Khalti app (available both in iOS and Android platforms). This e-learning platform is available for female users only.
